While it is possible to play in the Fortnite All Valley Cup in any region you like by going into the Options menu and changing your server region, we wouldn’t necessarily recommend it. Each Epic account can only enter the tournament one time, which means you’re locked to whichever region you select. Should you select to play on servers that are farther from where you live, you’re more likely to experience input lag and other connectivity issues. With these potential faults in mind, in order to have the best competitive experience and the best opportunity to win, you’re best off playing in your home region.

How to access the Fortnite All Valley Cup standings and leaderboard
If you’re curious about where you rank in the All Valley Cup while the proceedings are underway, there are a few ways to check out the data. In between matches, scroll over to the Competitive tab and the tile for the All Valley Cup. During the event window, you should see a button prompt to “view leaderboard.” Press the designated button to see the results.
Alternatively, you can also use a third-party site like Fortnite Tracker to track your performance. Just make sure the leaderboard for your region is selected.
